a lot of positives about the u.s. economy, if washington can get its act together, but europe is still a big issue. what do you think about europe right now? have we made progress? and what's to come? >> well, i think there's some big, long term things they need to do in europe over the next 5-7 years. they've done some structural forms. they've raised their pension ages. they've done labor market reforms. nothing has happened in the united states. absolutely nothing. and i think their reasons for optimism from the shale, which, by the way, that's an area where people are excited to talk about that. and, you know, there's some optimism coming from the easy money, i suppose, still. but i think in the united states, you know, if we get to the consensus, which seems to be 3% at the end of the year, i think that would be good. >> let me ask you about the economy. relative to what ee's going on washington. we voted that the house extended to see a debt ceili ining for a months. how does this play out? >> forever. i mean, that's the short answer. forever. they don't agree. so we're seeing an
interested in the discussion about the global economy. obviously, the u.s. economy is still a global leader. we want it to remain that way. the political debate at home has been very much about jobs and the economy. and we're here listening to some of the leaders of the eu and other entities here trying to understand how they're dealing with their problems. and i think coming out of all this will be a renewed sense that in america we can compete and we will compete and we will continue to be the destination for capital and innovation. >> and we've got a natural gas boom, an oil boom, we've got thanks to low interest rates what appears to be some sort of a housing boom. so much more can happen. in fact it seems like the only body, the only institution that might stand in the way of 2013 being a great year is congress. >> well, listen. there is certainly not the outcome that anybody wants. and i'm hoping that after we've been through the election of last november, been through a fiscal cliff debate, working our way through a debt ceiling debate, i think in a responsible manner, with an eye to
of an economy that has been stagnant for about four years. in the meantime the federal government keeps plunging into debt. so if someone brings forward an alternative to at least give us the opportunity to provide effective oversight and to make sure that this money does go to emergency needs and doesn't just fulfill a wish list for what some cities would like to do in the future to prevent against future storms -- not that we shouldn't be debating that, but that doesn't qualify as an emergency need getting money to the people that need it now. these are future decisions. we haven't had time to assess those. we haven't had time to examine those in detail. we haven't used the process that is in place here in the united states senate to go through committees and let the committees work through, is this essential to meeting the emergency needs? or can we set this aside and spend a little more time examining it, looking at it to make sure that this is how we want to go forward? we have a habit here of throwing money at things under an emergency category and then later finding out that, one, it wasn

it would have on our economy. the majority of them have been in our country for over ten years. but the point is that they would have to -- our plan, they would have a legal status here. but then they would have to go through a long process, get in line behind everyone who is a green cardholder, pay tax, go through a background check, in order to be eligible for a path to citizenship. and so i hope that some my colleagues in the house will look at the provisions that we have and, by the way, they would have to pay back taxes, and they would have to pay for their path to citizenship. i do not see a scenario where it would cost money. what costs money now is when people are in this country illegally, show up in the emergency room, with illness, and that bill is paid for by the taxpayers. >> i guess the argument, the other side makes, lamar smith, among others, you tried this in thereagan administration. they say it only encouraged more illegal immigrants to try to come to the united states. >> well, i think that's a good point. i was one of those who voted for that amnesty for 3
